A man known as “The Blight of Blackpool” has been jailed after breaching his Criminal Anti Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) for the sixth time.
Glenn Stacey, 54, of Victory Road, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to failing to comply with a court order.
He was sentenced to 28 days jail by District Judge David Scanlon sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.
Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Stacey was made the subject of a three-year CRASBO which banned him from areas of Blackpool town centre in February.
On April 25 police were called to the resort’s Poundland store. Stacey was in the shop which was in an area he was prohibited from entering.
Stacey, who had 350 previous convictions on his record, had five previous convictions for breaching his CRASBO.
Michael Woosnam, defending, said Stacey was on the tram from Cleveleys when his girlfriend asked him to buy some milk and cheese.
Stacey got off the tram and without thinking, went into Poundland to buy the items.
